We are working with an international faith based charity to recruit a Trustee to focus on Conference Facilities Management
The Board meets for 4 hours, 3 times a year during working hours in London. There may also be few occasions when the Board Member may be asked to be available as a sounding board for management.
Duration of the role
Board terms are 3 years, with a potential for a second three year term
The conference facilities business has evolved over time, and is managed by highly committed staff that have grown within the organisation. There is a limited budget for marketing, conference booking system and various requirements to ensure the conference rooms run efficiently.
The business now has 2 exciting opportunities
Firstly, to optimise the business prior to anticipated renovation, which is likely to occur in the second half of 2020;
Secondly, to assess the longer term potential for growth, provide input into the renovation plans ( aiming to submit for planning permission in Jan 2020), and to prepare for a relaunch of the renovated facilities from early 2021.
The role of the Board member would be to provide guidance and support to management, both in taking short-term steps to enhance revenue, and in developing and executing the longer-term plan.
